A reliable favorite – delicious creamy caramel undertones in every sip. Looks like it’s time to reorder!

What a fantastic blend of unusual flavor combinations – the distinctive flavor of guayasa with the gentleness of vanilla and then that mint catches you. My first experience with this one and I’ve really enjoyed it!

This is a new tea for me (although I’ve had it on the shelf for 4-5 months). For some reason, this afternoon I felt like a flavored green. The aroma is fantastic and the taste was exactly what I was seeking – strong and solid but not too overpowering. Delicious with out sugar and good for two flavorful steeps.

Profile

Bio

Former coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life. Surprised to learn what a passion I have developed for all things tea related.

Steepster has been a big help – I’ve been reading daily to learn as much as I can. Thanks to Steepster reviews, I’ve been able to find good tea quickly – a few misses for me but lots of hits!

At the moment, I enjoy most tea types but I cannot handle jasmine or other florals and I’m not particularly fond of bergamot. Started with flavored teas but moved quickly into high quality blacks, greens, oolongs and pu’ers — drinking hot flavored teas less and less. My cold brews for iced tea usually seem to be a fruity green, white or rooibos but every once in awhile I’ll chill an oolong or pu’er.

Note: In an effort to keep track of all the teas I’ve tried, my cupboard includes any tea I’ve ever owned (including things I’ve sipped down and no longer have in my tea cupboard). In addition, many of the teas listed are unopened waiting to age or work their way into the rotation.
